The musings of a totally obsessed Craftaholic!
Stamps, papercrafts, quilting, knitting..... I just love to craft.

I thought it was about time I started seriously getting on with the job of making my Christmas cards for this year. I am so late starting them this year, that I shall have to really get down to it very soon. So, for this one I used one of my newly acquired vintage santa image stamps from Crafty Individuals. I stamped the image on to bristol board using memento ink in tuxedo black. I then used distress inks to both colour the image and add distressing around the outside edges of the image layer. After it was coloured, I sprayed it with two layers of Crafters' Companion Spray and Shine varnish and one layer of CC Spray and Sparkle (unfortunately the sparkle effect doesn't show up too well on this picture). I embossed a layer of red mirror card in one of my snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folders and layered the stamped image onto this. The BP is from Grahicus which I received as part of my membership of the Graphicus Guild. The flowers were punched from the same red mirror card with punched snowflakes added on top. I used the layout from the Let's Get Stamping sketchie challenge for last week over on Craftbubble so this will be one of my entries for the challenge.
